Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford...

Long and ponderous, this film likely won’t appeal to young audiences unless they are particularly interested in the subject or era. It also contains many moments of gun violence, with victims shot at close range (details and blood are shown). There are a couple of scenes with frank and coarse sexual discussion, one involving derogatory details about Native American women. Other language includes infrequent mild and moderate profanities, a couple of uses of Christian deity as expletives, and crude anatomical terms. Some characters smoke in this period drama.
